We have a host of solutions to make your hands look young again— or at least be a closer match to your face. Your hands give away your age: pigment changes, age spots, uneven texture, fat loss and prominent veins all make your hands look old. However, topical treatments, lasers and fillers can refresh your hands in the same way they turn back the clock on facial skin to create more youthful contours.

See us for treatments that can help you, whatever your hands need!
Fillers or Fat Transfer to Smooth & Soften Hands’ Appearance
The most common complaint for hands is having veiny hands with tendons that are prominent. This is easily fixed with filler injections, with Radiesse, Lyft, and Voluma being the most popular fillers used for this.
However, as Dr. Wix-Harris mentions in the video above, fat transfer, especially if done with concentrated microfat injections, creates a very natural and long-lasting result that really comprehensively improves not just the softness of the hands but how youthful the skin appears, as well.
Sun Spot Removal with Lasers, Chemical Peels
Fraxel Re:Store Dual, Fraxel CO2, eCO2, erbium, and the Q-Switched Yag are the lasers we most commonly use for the hands, although they aren’t the only lasers we could use (for the right patient and situation). Amongst these popular lasers, we are often selecting options based on a patient’s preference for downtime versus desire for big result (big results can be had with minimal downtime only if you’re willing to do a series of treatments, for almost all cosmetic goals).Learn More About Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Improve Skin Texture & Youthfulness with Lasers, Chemical Peels, or Retin-A
Retin-A and gentle chemical peels can be done at home, with products purchased over the counter or prescribed by our doctors. Most patients will want to start there, provided they have mild or moderate discoloration or texture issues on the hands.
When gentler products don’t make a big enough impact, then lasers are typically the treatment of choice. Lasers
